editsville in transit

…in which we toil over the inner harbor channel with mouse and camera. Transit is one act of our A LOT 2014 presentation the Floating Bridge of Dreams. It was initially envisioned as the opening act, and might still turn out to be…assuming we can overcome our fear of daylight. That’s because our 6:30 evening […]

and back on the GDB

and back on the GDB

…in which *** SPOILERS *** Saturday, July 12, found Jacob and Dave out on the Gerald Desmond Bridge again in Long Beach, doing what we do: listening to lampposts, taking photos and video of infrastructure and plastic manikins, impromptu interviews with the Port of Long Beach Harbor Patrol. Our Saturday morning adventures were followed by […]

WordPress…civilization…where will it end?

WordPress…civilization…where will it end?

…in which we consider our third—or is it our fourth?—makeover…. Some time last year the various web and cultural planets I follow—perfunctorily, even lazily, I have to admit—came into alignment. I had an epiphany about the work we’re doing here at wikiGong.com. That is, an epiphany about our web page, not about the various things […]

the last SoundWalk

Well, there we were…as always, right where we weren’t supposed to be…at SoundWalk 2013 in Long Beach. Back near our starting point, actually, over on 3rd Street between Elm Ave. and Long Beach Blvd. For three of the last four years we’ve been within a few doorways of the same spot. Igor Amokian was out […]

SoundWalk 2012: crowdsourcing the post-production

What people see and capture they sometimes post, some more quickly than others. Here’s a little compendium of links to Long Beach SoudWalk 2012 videos we’ve run across, almost all appearing within thirty days of the event. Our own post-production clean-up continues to lag behind. (Those pesky day gigs! You try washing them out….) We’re […]

the GGB turns seventy five

…in which history repeats itself…. Couldn’t let the day go by without noting the event, though thousands of others have marked it already. A few of my favorites: Golden Gate Bridge Opening May 27, 1937 Pedestrian Walk Golden Gate Bridge Under Construction Golden Gate Opus with the Marin Symphony The SF Chronicle’s take

an epic day

…in which we direct, and are directed. With only three weeks to go until SoundWalk 2011, my signature piece Where Is My Future needed a final content infusion. This weekend, Becky and I set out to gather the second video installment in preparation for production, and got more than we bargained for. I’ll try to […]

at last, a little fun

…in which we lose our YouTube virginity. Thanks, Robin! Let’s see if that works…. We’ve replaced the old video embed with a YouTube player and playlist. You’ll note the video had to be re-edited to get down to under-ten-minute segments, so there’s a break between the two sections that hopefully won’t be too annoying. Well, […]

a satori of sorts

…in which we realize it’s more complicated than that. OK, so this morning I tried out the site from the Beta PC platform (not the Alpha Mac) and got a surprise. The video link resulted — after about 25 minutes of downloading — in video. In a frame, on a new tab, playing like it […]

broken QuickTime

…in which the video doesn’t work any more. Well, I’m not sure whether it’s me or file sizes or what, but now that we’ve got GGB Assay #2 published — yay! — the movie isn’t functioning — ack!. In fact, it’s been suggested by new visitors that it stopped working a couple of weeks ago. […]
